TARPON SPRINGS - The city of Tarpon Springs will begin renovating the outside of City Hall at a cost of $2.2 million, a project the city commission approved April 19.

“We’ve probably been putting money away and talking about this for at least five years,” City Manager Mark LeCouris said.

At one point, there was talk about building a new city hall, at a cost of $6 million to $8 million. But the city would still have to maintain the historic school building that houses the city’s Performing Arts Center, LeCouris explained.

TARPON SPRINGS - The city of Tarpon Springs is in the process of developing a Tarpon Springs Contractor and Construction Business Directory, which will be added to all city of Tarpon Springs construction solicitations.

The directory is intended to provide local business resources to those prime contractors submitting bids on city projects. The city believes the use of local contractors and suppliers on city projects is the best way for dollars spent on these construction projects to be put back into the community.

Local businesses that wish to be included in the Contractor and Construction Business Directory should contact Chief Procurement Officer Jay Jackus at 727-943-4871 or jjackus@ctsfl.us

TARPON SPRINGS - The auditorium at Tarpon Springs City Hall was filled with well-wishers both for the incoming and outgoing city leaders April 12, as Mayor David Archie and Vice-mayor Jeff Larsen finished their second terms at the dais.

The two meetings, one with the outgoing leaders and the second led by new Mayor Chris Alahouzos, contained largely ceremonial items. To start, Archie gave Florida Sen. Jack Latvala, R-Clearwater, a key to the city in thanks for his efforts in securing funds for city projects, including the recently renovated auditorium. However, Latvala took his time at the podium to lead the shower of appreciation to Archie for his six years of service to the city.
